J27 - 2 and 4 February 2022


It was a fine, mild, slightly overcast day at Grosmont on Wednesday with Bill Dobson, Steve Hyman, Ed Bolam, Nigel Hall and Ian Pearson. I attended later in the morning but had to leave early afternoon.

Nigel Hall worked on the front end of the J27 tender, giving it a coat of undercoat then made a start tidying up the front buffer beam.

On Friday Bill, Ian and Richard De Sadeleer were present at Deviation Shed. Richard De Sadeleer was busy working on the J27 big end bearing, cleaning and measuring up for machining.
